Did a fantastic job restoring my teeth. The root canals did not hurt at all. My teeth are whiter and beautiful! Crowns and veneers gave me a smile that I am proud to show off!
in Clarks Summit, PA |
Dr Coolican and his staff are wonderful! My smile has been transformed cosmetically to one I am so proud to show. The office was understanding of my inflexible hours and even stayed late to accommodate me. The office is clean and has state of the art technology. The staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful. Extremely happy and satisfied with my dental experience. PJC

I cannot recommend Dr. Coolican enough. About 5 years ago I had a back molar break and did not get it taken care of at the time. This past week I had been experiencing excruciating pain and swelling, to the point that I was unable to drink or eat. I called every oral surgeon in Scranton, including my own, but none had a single appointment available until the end of next week. I called Dr. Coolican and he went above and beyond for me and scheduled an ASAP emergency appointment.
in Hanover Township, PA |
I have SEVERE anxiety and Dr. Coolican was great at helping me feel at ease. He is a kind, caring, excellent doctor. I wouldn't recommend anyone else.
